ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS

FUTURE-FOCUSED STUDY ABROAD The Institute for Study Abroad, Butler University (IFSA-Butler) delivers flexible programs that optimize the long-term benefits of study abroad participation. Since 1988, IFSA-Butler has grown to support students from hundreds of U.S. and Canadian institutions each year. The IFSA-Butler student experience is personally tailored for individualized impact. More than just an exciting study abroad opportunity, IFSA-Butler programs integrate the acquisition of critical lifelong skills—the essence of Future-Focused Study Abroad.

INTENTIONAL PROGRAMMING IFSA-Butler offers more than 100 dynamic study abroad programs in 18 countries. Comprehensive academic, personal, and logistical support allows our students to focus on making the most of the study abroad experience. Through our local staff experts, our students develop insider knowledge of the local academic environment. Internships, directed research options, volunteer opportunities, community-based learning and our signature Exploring Community & Culture model all facilitate critical skill development. Many of our programs are based at pre-eminent institutions abroad offering direct access to academic departments distinguished as leaders in their respective disciplines, while other programs offer IFSA-Butler courses taught by local experts. All programs are structured to engage students and promote intellectual growth.

BEYOND STUDY ABROAD Our philosophy is guided by the key principles of appreciative advising, a positive, goals-oriented strategy that builds on the strengths of the individual and encourages the exploration of new perspectives, allowing students to challenge themselves and maximize their learning in unexpected ways. Because constructive learning is the most meaningful, IFSA-Butler students take part in a pre-arrival process that prepares them to succeed; on-site experiences that push them to create knowledge through their interactions with peers, instructors and community members; and post-program reflection that clarifies transferrable skills acquired. The personal agency that emerges is one of the greatest benefits students can achieve through studying abroad, and it is at the core of the Future-Focused Study Abroad approach that distinguishes IFSA-Butler.

IFSA-BUTLER SCHOLARSHIP AND FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES IFSA-Butler believes that study abroad should be within the reach of every student, so we offer a wide range of scholarships and financing services. Any applicant to an IFSA-Butler program is welcome to apply for the opportunities below. IFSA-BUTLER SCHOLARSHIPS Awards are $1,000 for any IFSA-Butler summer program. Scholarship awards appear as a credit on the student account.

FILL THE GAP Fill the GAP allows students to save in advance for any IFSA-Butler program and to use the funds to help pay the program fee.

UPFRONT PROGRAM UpFront allows students to put airfare and their program deposit on their IFSA-Butler student account in order to minimize up-front costs. The account may then be paid with financial aid or our monthly payment option.

WORK-TO-STUDY GRANTS Build your resume and help pay for study abroad at the same time! Work-to-Study grants allow students to work on special projects before or during their study abroad experience. IFSA-Butler pays $250 to $1,000 for completed projects. Positions are typically available in marketing and communications, website development or in clerical projects.

USE YOUR FINANCIAL AID TO STUDY ABROAD! Many students don’t realize that financial aid can help pay for study abroad. Pell Grants, Stafford Loans and PLUS loans can apply to your IFSA-Butler program. College grants and scholarships, Perkins Loans, state grants and loans, and 529 plans may also be used for study abroad, but you’ll need to ask your home campus financial aid office about their policies for transferring these types of aid.

Welcome to our programmes in England. We are thrilled you have chosen England as the site of your study abroad experience and are confident you will all enjoy the unique challenges and pleasures of negotiating the cultural differences which exist between our countries. We may share (sometimes distantly) a common tongue, but we hope you will discover much that will excite and confuse, delight and challenge. From the exciting urban expanse that is London to the charm of Cambridge, from our much maligned weather to our pub culture — England has it all. No matter what your interests or passions, the staff in the London office are here to aid, abet, mentor and help you achieve the best from your time on the other side of the “pond.” Long may the “Special Relationship” continue.

Baruch haba! Welcome to Israel! Ours is one of the most intriguing countries and cultures in the world, and it’s also a great place for study abroad. Israel has it all: terrific weather, friendly people, amazing food and a unique culture not found anywhere else in the world. Best of all, modern Israel is a splendid mixture of ancient and new. The world’s three major monotheistic religions have their heart in Jerusalem, so history and faith abound from all corners. At the same time, however, twenty-first century Israel is as contemporary and developed as any European or North American society. Our program is based in Jerusalem. Here you’ll live alongside students from around the world and study in one of the world’s most prestigious universities. Come, and experience the magic of Israel. Shalom!

MEXICO

Language and Cultural Studies in the Yucatán Medical Spanish and Public Health in the Yucatán

MÉRIDA The capital and largest city of Yucatán, Mérida lies in sharp contrast to many Americans’ stereotypes about Mexican cities. The city is compact and tranquil, yet also a cosmopolitan center of culture in southern Mexico. It’s also famed for having a relaxed attitude and student-friendly atmosphere. Colonial Spanish architecture adds to Mérida’s beauty and personifies the city’s long history, while a thriving Mayan influence shows in the local language and dress. In your spare time, take advantage of free evening concerts and Mérida’s exciting nightlife.

WELCOME FROM OUR RESIDENT DIRECTOR

Mérida, also known as “La Ciudad Blanca” because of the widespread use of white limestone and paint, is one of the safest cities in Latin America and holds the distinction of having the lowest crime rate in Mexico. It is a living laboratory of ancient cultures still present today through architecture, language and amazing cuisine with contemporary Mérida as a lively center. The city’s combination of the great Mayan civilization with Spanish colonial traces will transport you to a time and place difficult to imagine until you experience it. This program will allow you to change the single story of Mexico. Through different experiences, courses, faculty, friends, local families, travel and exposure to life here, you will be able to challenge old myths, break stereotypes and redefine identities. You will go from being a tourist to becoming a traveler; from seeing to observing and from being a bystander to making connections. IFSA-Butler will make sure you are exposed to the best cultural and academic offerings for the summer and also give you the opportunity to experience diversity firsthand by contrasting some of the world’s famous archaeological sites with cities as amazing as Mexico City, Chiapas and Havana, Cuba. We cannot wait to show you all this! Sincerely, Diana Arízaga, Resident Director and all the IFSA-Butler staff in Mexico
